We will be walking with you during the hospital stay and placement, as well as after the placement once you go home with the child. Regular home visits are scheduled over a six month period to ensure you have the information you need regarding the child’s adjustment, your adjustment, expectations, common reactions of adopting parents, comments from well meaning friends and family, and a host of other topics to assist you to adjust as a new family! During those first 6 months our attorney will be filing a variety of paperwork to ensure that the adoption is fully legal so that their is never a question regarding the permanency of the adoption. We then petition the finalization through the Court, and request the new birth certificate. Even after the adoption is finalized through the Court, we are still here for you for questions, support, information and education. And maybe a second child!
